"Stay With Me" as written by Rami Yacoub, Arnthor Birgisson and Makeba Riddick....
Raindrops fall from everywhere
I reach out for you but you're not there
So I stood waiting in the dark
With your picture in my hands
Story of a broken heart

Stay with me, don't let me go
Cause I can't be without you
Just stay with me and hold me close
Because I've built my world around you
And I don't wanna know what it's like without you
So stay with me, just stay with me

I'm trying and hoping for the day
When my touch is enough to take the pain away
Cause I've searched for so long, the answer is clear
We'll be okay if we don't let it disappear

Stay with me, don't let me go
Cause I can't be without you
Just stay with me, hold me close
Because I've built my world around you
And I don't wanna know what it's like without you
So stay with me, just stay with me

I've searched my heart over so many many times
No, you and I is like no stars to light the sky at night
Our picture hangs up to remind me of the days
You promised me we'd always be and never go away
That's why I need you to stay

Stay with me, don't let me go
Cause I can't be without you
Just stay with me and hold me close
Because I've built my world around you
And I don't wanna know what it's like without you
So stay with me, just stay with me

Don't leave
So I stay waiting in the dark

    General CommentI think this is the most beautiful song on the album. It's a bit depressing, but you can feel the desperation.

    General Comment"1alill" is right.. you can hear the desperation in dawns voice when she says

    "I've searched my heart over so many many times
    No, you and I is like no stars to light the sky at night
    Our picture hangs up to remind me of the days
    You promised me we'd always be and never go away
    That's why I need you to stay."

    Thats my favorite part, its the best part in my eyes, but it's sad.

    Thats my favorite part, its the best part in my eyes, but you feel a sense of empathy, because you can feel what there feeling in this song. its a powerful one.

    General CommentThis song is really beautiful in a sad depressing sort of way. I can defiantly relate to this song. It does sound like a guy promised his girl they'd be together forever and unfortunately he lied and left her or hurt her in some way.
